"Well, I think that he's trying to do the right thing here, and make sure that, you know, I'm gonna do the plea bargain thing and make sure that I don't get into this situation, ever again. As long as you make a mistake and learn from it, I hope people give him a lot of lattitude, because people make mistakes, and as long as he's trying to take those positive steps and do the right thing, I think we should all respect that and support him."

-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion and promotional poster boy Jon Jones has been in damage control mode since May 19, 2012, when he crashed his Bentley into a utility pole on Binghamton, New York. In the aftermath, "Bones" was able to reach a plea bargain agreement that saved him from having to serve any prison time. Jones' trainer, Greg Jackson of Jackson's MMA, spent some time with HDNet's "Inside MMA," where he answered questions about the recent misadventures of his prized pupil. Jackson's take is that we should all live and let live and be willing to allow Jones to move on. We all make mistakes, right? Hear more from Jackson on Jones' DWI arrest after the jump.
